[laughter] the transcript was an excellent explanation of the conservative argument that what is coming america is a sclerotic, obsolete hanging onto every regulation, every increase in taxation, i thought he did it well. the problem is, he should have done it in a studio somewhere well-prepared. >> colby? >> it was a "saturday night l

[ indistinct shouting ] >> baltimore ravens fans celebrating their big super bowl win, filling the streets after their team's 34-31 defeat over the san francisco 49ers. the win, which at first, seemed a lock with an earlier 28-6 lead, almost slipping out of the ravens' hands after a bizarre power outage plunged part of the stadium into darkness and slowed their winning momentum. but in the end, the team holding on for its big win. malala yousufzai, a 15-year-old pakistani girl shot by the taliban, telling the world she is reco
lew served in the clinton administration. i think he worked in the omb in the, you know, office of management of the budget. and he was one of the key players in helping pass the repeal of glass-steagall. and, you know, this is kind of the way it works. it's not a one to one, you know, obvious connection. but, you know, glass-steagall was repealed specifically to legalize the merger of citigroup. and, you know, coincidentally bob rubin, who was the treasury secretary and jack lew end up working at citigroup five, ten years later. and they make enormous amounts of money. and then they go back to government. and again, this is just sort of this merry-go-round that everybody in washington knows about. and that's the way it works. >> how do you explain president obama's attitude in this? when he was running for president, he promised the close the revolving door. and he seemed genuinely shocked at the collapse of the financial system and the banks' role in it. but he also was raking in massive campaign contributions from these very people. did those investments, did those contributi
